BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec. 12, 2014–A proposal to require children, pony riders, juniors and young riders to wear protective head gear at horse inspections at International Equestrian Federation (FEI) events was dropped Friday.

The proposal sparked a “healthy debate” before the proposal was to be voted on by the FEI General Assembly.

Feedback from the German and Dutch Federations led to Frank Kemperman, chair of the Dressage Committee, withdrawing the proposal.
